    Love this app, it's one of the best notification apps out there. I've tired others and didn't like how they functioned in terms of displaying the notification. Only issue I have and why its not 5 stars is the controls are clunky and not easy to use as others. But still love this app.

    Widget is great for lockscreen and has a lot of personalization, but the notifications panel is glitchy

    This app is an amazing idea, and it's executed pretty well, but it has done issues. For one, the notifications remain when I unlock my phone, and to add to that, nearly every time I wake my phone, it gives me a pop up, saying, "display messaging app". Nearly every time. And it is annoying. Fix this, and you've got yourself a darn near perfect app.
